Join us in March for our Spring Semester Musical Theatre Class
“YOU WILL BE FOUND”
This class will explore the TONY AWARD WINNING Broadway SMASH HIT “Dear Evan Hansen”.
About the Class: Through a series of theatre games and structured activities, students will work independently and with their peers to explore the complex, emotional, and deeply intimate journey of Dear Evan Hansen. This 6-time Tony Award winning musical has taken the world by storm with its compelling message and connected millions of people who have ever felt lost, misunderstood, or alone in a world where we are, with the advent of social media, more connected than ever. Upon completion of this 8-week class, students will have been equipped with tools and skills that they can use as they continue to pursue theatre as an actor/musician, or simply as an admirer of the art form.
“Dear Evan Hansen, Today’s going to be a great day. And here’s why: because today, at least you’re you…and that’s enough.”
About the show: A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is a new American musical about life and the way we live it.
Dear Evan Hansen has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere. The New York Times calls it “a gorgeous new musical for anyone with a beating heart.” And NBC Nightly News calls this bold new musical “an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.” (source: www.dearevanhansen.com)
